Teaser Tuesday (April 15)

Teasing Tuesday CB

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read

• Open to a random page

• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to

My Teaser this week is from The Telling Error by Sophie Hannah

The Telling Error
Blurb

Stuck in a traffic jam, Nicki Clements sees a face she hoped never to see again. It’s definitely him, the same police officer, stopping each car on Elmhirst Road. Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape.
Or so she thinks. The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road.
Nicki can’t answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in a way that involved no spilling of blood, or why ‘HE IS NO LESS DEAD’ was painted across Blundy’s study. And she can’t explain why she avoided Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her life.
Because although Nicki is not guilty of murder, she is far from innocent . . .Goodreads

Choosing a teaser from one of Sophie Hannah’s books is a tough call as you are never quite sure what constitutes a clue so I’ve chosen one from the begging of the book  where a message is posted on the internet…

My Teaser

When alive, he was well known and – though this might well have nothing to do with anything – strikingly attractive in a stubbly, cowboy-without-hat kind of way. If I were to include his name in this account, I think most people would have heard of him.

  1. I LOVE Sophie Hannah’s books, and this one is on my list. She has a way of drawing us into such twisted tales that we feel caught up right with the characters. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.
